DBL Partners Makes the Impact Assets 50

IA 50 manage a Combined $10.2 Billion within the impact investing market

October 4, 2012

Due to some travel we were slow to get this up on the blog, but we are no less thrilled and hon­ored to have been added on Tues­day to the Impact Assets 50 (IA 50 — see full press release here), a resource for advi­sors and investors seek­ing to respond to the grow­ing demand for invest­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties that deliver both finan­cial and social or envi­ron­men­tal returns.

The IA 50 is a gate­way  to the impact invest­ing space and is the first open source, pub­licly pub­lished data­base of impact invest­ment fund man­agers.  Accord­ing to the IA 50’s news release, the fund man­agers included in this year’s IA 50 man­age a com­bined $10.2 bil­lion in assets within the impact invest­ing mar­ket, a 15 per­cent growth over assets rep­re­sented in last year’s IA 50.

Cri­te­ria for mak­ing the IA 50:

First announced by Gen­worth Finan­cial Man­age­ment Chair and ImpactAs­sets Board Mem­ber, Ron Cordes at the Clin­ton Global Ini­tia­tive in 2010, an exten­sive appli­ca­tions and review process of fund man­agers across the sec­tor con­ducted each year pro­duces the IA 50 list.  In order to be con­sid­ered for the IA 50 2012, fund man­agers needed to meet mul­ti­ple cri­te­ria includ­ing hav­ing at least $5 mil­lion in assets under man­age­ment, more than three years expe­ri­ence with impact invest­ing and demon­strated com­mit­ment to impact.
